Genies and Super Genies

Genies are like object templates that you can place on graphics pages to help simplify the configuration of many similar devices. They group functional and graphical elements, and present device information using configurable string substitutions as placeholders for specific tags or expressions. The information is then presented during runtime.

Super Genies are genies that can be passed device-specific information at runtime. Super Genies are useful for dynamic controls, like a popup switch that can be used to control many devices.
